kittens are amazing

we are so amazed at the changes
in Kitty in just four short weeks.

from a teeny tiny ball of fur
to a creature that runs, plays,
eats from a dish,
finds and uses a litter box....

and loves us back.

that's the very best thing.

a month later....

Kitty has been with us for a month today.
yesterday she ate her first food out of a bowl
instead of a bottle.

today she ate almost as much as she got
on her face. almost.

Kitty also uses a litter box pretty well.
and can run really really fast.

go, Kitty, go!

Kitty sleeping

Kitty spends quite a bit of her time asleep.
(we think Kitty's a girl)

She sleeps in many positions,
but our favorite is Kitty sleeping on her back.

Kitty enjoys a good stretch, too.

oh, and Kitty is walking quite a bit.
and will soon be drinking from a dish instead of a bottle.

slow down, Kitty! don't grow up too fast.

Kitty will be three weeks old tomorrow.
imagine that.....

Kitty is two weeks old!

Kitty loves to sleep.
here is Kitty sleeping.

Kitty also loves a massage.
Kitty purrs very loudly.

Kitty has started to walk a bit.
more of a stagger, really.
and Kitty can sit up quite nicely.

we think Kitty is a genius.

everyone loves Kitty.

before and after shots

this is an adoption success story.

one of Kitty's relatives is named Lois.
she came from the pound.
she was very skinny, underfed,
had had many litters and
been treated very badly.

Lois is a different dog today.
her weight has doubled.
her hair is very luxurious.
she is the sweetest dog on the planet.
and she can twirl on her hind legs.

this is Lois "before", on the day
we got her. even the vet thought
she must be part Chinese Crested.
poor Lois.

Kitty's feline friends

Kitty has some neutered feline friends in the neighborhood.

these feral cats have been captured, innoculated, spayed and released
by a non-profit group called Borough Cat Tales
in Stonington, Connecticut.

happy birthday

Kitty is now six days old.
this picture was taken yesterday.
Kitty's ears have flapped up.

we'll add a new photo after Kitty's party.

just Kitty and a big cake. the cake is for us.

happy birthday, Kitty!

meet Kitty's family

Kitty has a family.

and friends.

meet the baby

this newborn kitten was found on a waterfront dock by a local fisherman. we have no idea how it got there or where its mother is. we have been hand rearing it ever since, feeding it every two to three hours around the clock.

motherhood is wonderful.
